All the ingredients for this milk tart are right in your pantry – no extra shopping needed and it is all made from scratch. And the best part – it is very comforting and great for the holiday season.

Sucre Patee (Pastry Crust)
 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour(188 grams)
 ¼ tsp salt
 9 tbsp unsalted butter(125grams) (cold or frozen) , cut into small pieces
 1 large egg yolk
Milk filling
 5 ¼ cups milk( 496 ml)
 2 tbsp (28grams) butter
 2 tbsp (20 grams) flour
 3-4 tbsp cornstarch(23- 30grams)
 ½ cup sugar(100grams)
 2 Large eggs
 ½ tsp almond extract (optional)
 ½ tsp cinnamon
 ½ tsp nutmeg or replace with cinnamon

Don’t wait for this pie to firm up – it just doesn’t, more of a pudding with a crust.  It is made with a sweet pastry crust often referred to as Pate sablée, the good thing about this pastry is that you do not have to worry about rolling it out – all you do is press the crust into the pie pan – freeze for 30 minutes and then bake without weight. Freezing prevents the pie from rising.
